Island Surfboards began in 1969 when two surfers decided to make some boards for their mates. They enjoyed every surfer’s dream of uncrowded waves, pristine coastlines and a relaxed working atmosphere. Since then the Phillip Island area has grown, and Island Surfboards has grown with it, to become one of the most respected names in Australian surfing.
For almost 50 years Island Surfboards has been passionate about producing, preserving and teaching surf culture. We have a highly experienced and dedicated team of shapers, finishers, riders and surf coaches. Over many years we have gained a reputation for producing premium custom made boards, apparel, accessories and surfers. Our products and services supply surfers, surf schools and the general public locally and all around the world.
A Family Business
With three generations of surfing on the island, Island surfboards continues to evolve and provide everything you need to enjoy your time in the water. Both Cowes and Smiths Beach locations stock a complete selection of Island surf boards and accessories as well as an extensive range of the most popular surfing brands available. Our Smiths Beach site also boasts one of Australia’s top surf schools, providing coaching for surfers ranging from entry level to high performance.
Whether you are looking for new threads, new board, a surf lesson or just a yarn about how the surf is on the day... our experienced staff and board shapers are on hand to give the right advice and local knowledge so you get the most out of your surfing. At Island we believe in sharing everything surfing has to offer.
A lot has changed since 1969, but our passion for local service and producing the best quality surfing equipment will always remain the same.
